Cons:
If you're gonna do one Stormrider track, it shouldn't be the song itself. I'd have rather seen Pure Evil, Travel in Stygian, or Angel's Holocaust. Also I've always felt My Own Savior is kind of overrated.

With Iced Earth though I take the good with the bad. I'm not gonna bitch over one or two songs, because with a band as hit-or-miss as they are, it could always be A LOT worse.
You call those pros? wtf. Watching Over Me shouldn't have even been put on a studio album, let alone be played live every show.
